One thought on “Spotlight #5: Days of Fandom Past with Dave Merrill”

  1. Was a little late on listening but awesome episode. I always love to hear about how it was to be a fan in the older days.

    Thanks for reading out my questions; I would have loved to see Noboru Ishiguro in person but unfortunately I didn’t start going to conventions out of state until last year (and I only started going to the convention in-state two years before that) so too late for me sadly.

    I also find that I pretty much choose what to watch entirely by whim. But I also don’t feel the need to watch something just because everyone else is talking about it. I definitely lag behind when it comes to the current hits. My reasoning is that (hopefully) there’ll still be a way to watch it later down the road, so there’s really no rush. This does mean that I lose out on the ongoing discussion that happens, but it’s not enough typically for me to draw my attention from older things that I am more in the mood to check out.

    That being said I am probably not checking out enough ongoing things as I’d like (and hence the problem of the never-ending backlog pile becomes exacerbated).
